Blaze rips through clubhouse By Steve Puterski

The Garretts joined the Save Our Escondido Library coalition, spearheaded by Debbie Resler, to fight back against the decision. Resler blasted the council for not accepting any other bids for the contract and ignoring a request for a budget proposal, the trustees’ unanimous vote against outsourcing and 4,000 signatures on a petition against the agreement. “This kind of decision mak-

ESCONDIDO — One of the centerpieces of a controversial development project was destroyed in a twoalarm fire on Nov. 22. The blaze broke out at 5:20 a.m. at the Escondido Country Club and took more than 12 hours to contain and extinguish, Escondido Fire spokesman Jeff Murdock said. Due to a lack of resources, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms will analyze evidence from the site, but results could take weeks, Murdock added. Escondido will still conduct the investigation, but the ATF will act in a support role to process and analyze evidence from the scene. “ATF has taken some stuff to the lab and we, unfortunately, don’t expect any results back for at least a month or so,” Murdock said. The intensity of the blaze prevented firefighters from entering the building when they arrived on scene. Walls and the ceiling collapsed, so units from Escondido, Vista, San Marcos, Carlsbad and Rancho Santa Fe had to fight the fire from the outside and couldn’t dose it with water until an opening in the roof was discovered, Murdock said. Murdock said no injuries

Fight for Escondido library heads to court By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — Dozens of supporters rallied at the city’s public library and marched to City Hall on Nov. 28 to protest the decision by the City Council to privatize the facility. San Diego-based consumer attorney Alan Geraci served the city papers and filed a lawsuit in the Vista Superior Court challenging the council’s Oct. 18 decision enter a 10year agreement for Maryland-based Library Systems & Services to oper-

ate the library. LS&S operates 20 library systems in 80 states, according to its website, and will take over operations on Dec. 18. The council voted 4-1, with Olga Diaz against, to privatize the library saying it can’t afford to cover pensions through CalPers. Employees of the library will be offered to keep their positions, although Geraci said it comes with pay cuts, reduced benefits and no pensions. “I filed a lawsuit against the city of Escondido for violating the edu-

cation code,” Geraci said. “The city of Escondido has failed the community, they have failed the workers of the library and have failed to follow the law.” Mary and Roy Garrett, who have lived in Escondido for 48 years and have been vociferous in their opposition, hired Geraci. Roy Garrett, a former attorney, is a staunch supporter of the library and railed against the council for adopting the measure to outsource the operations.

Local groups band together over plane noise, airport expansion

Residents in South Vista began noticing more air traffic noise involving McClellan-Palomar Airport in 2013, when the FAA implemented NextGen technology that triggers flight pattern changes and lower altitudes.

By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Neighbors living in the areas of the McClellan-Palomar Airport flight path are complaining of an uptick of loud overhead flights. The nonprofit South Vista Communities recently partnered with a newly formed Carlsbad group named Citizens for a Friendly Airport. Both groups encouraged

residents affected by the noise pollution to meet at the Shadowridge Golf Club for a Nov. 8 meeting. Established in 2006, South Vista Communities is an advocacy organization for neighborhoods south of I-78. Its focus is to preserve and improve the quality of life for South Vista residents. According to Stephanie Jackel, the president of

South Vista Communities, she and her husband didn’t encounter many overflights when they purchased their home in 2004. Aircraft was rarely seen or heard. However, this all changed in 2013. “The planes began flying right over the homes in the area very low and very loudly,” Jackel said. “We began TURN TO AIRPORT ON 14

Deputies fire on suspect accused of stealing van From wire reports

Sprouts plans Vista location From staff reports

VISTA — Phoenix-based Sprouts Farmers Market has signed a 15-year lease of 2½ acres adjacent to the Vista Terrace Marketplace retail center at 1280 E. Vista Way. The lease was announced this month by a spokesperson for Los Angeles-based Black Lion Investment Group, which bought the property last fall. Sprouts is scheduled to open at its new location

late next year, the Black Lion spokesperson said. A Sprouts spokesperson declined to confirm its plans for a Vista store, saying the company only announces store openings a quarter in advance. According to the developer, Sprouts will anchor a redevelopment of Vista Terrace Marketplace, which Black Lion is expanding from 48,000 to 80,000 square feet. The redevelopment in-

cludes construction of the new Sprouts store and the addition of restaurant suites with patios. Black Lion bought the shopping center last fall. Black Lion also this month announced it has signed a 20-year lease with Dunkin Donuts for one of four outparcel pad buildings at Vista Terrace Marketplace. Solana Beach-based Retail Insite is handling leasing.

Stabbing suspect arrested in Escondido ESCONDIDO — A man was arrested after he allegedly stabbed someone during an argument that got out of hand on Nov. 25, Escondido police said. Police began receiving calls at 6:47 p.m. Friday

about a disturbance at the Mobilepark West mobile home park, near the intersection of Valley and Bear Valley parkways, said Lt. Chris Lick of the Escondido Police Department. Responding officers

VALLEY CENTER — Sheriff’s officials have released the names of two veteran deputies who opened fire on a suspect who allegedly stole a minivan, fled from law enforcement, attempted to run down several deputies and then crashed into two sheriff’s patrol vehicles over the weekend in Valley Center. The San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies involved in the shooting — which did not injure the suspect but wounded a dog in his vehicle — were Aaron Boer, a 10-year veteran of the department, and 16year department veteran Gordon McCarthy, said sheriff’s homicide Sgt. Steve Bodine. The suspect, 22-yearold Kevin Ernesto Meza, was arrested following the chase and crash, authorities said. The homeless resident of North County is being held in lieu of $370,000 bail in the Vista Detention Center on suspicion

found one person at the scene with stab wounds, and arrested 33-year-old Timothy Rauth in connection with the stabbing, Lick said. Rauth was being held without bail on suspicion of causing great bodily.

of eight felony charges including three counts of assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer. The incident began about 3 a.m. Nov. 26 when deputies at the Valley Center substation received a radio call to be on the lookout for a stolen Honda Odyssey van, according to Sheriff’s Lt. Rich Williams. The van was later seen near Valley View Casino, and with the help of San Pasqual Tribal Police, deputies attempted to stop it. Meza reportedly stopped for a few seconds, then drove off at a high speed, narrowly missing a patrol vehicle, Williams said. Deputies pursued the van northbound on North Lake Wohlford Road onto Thundernut Lane, where the driver again stopped briefly. When deputies approached the van on foot, Meza attempted to drive into one of the deputies, causing the deputies to open fire, Williams said. The driver again sped off to the dead end of Thun-

dernut Lane where he made a U-turn and sped toward the deputies, who again opened fire. Bodine did not specify how many shots were fired or if both Boer and McCarthy opened fire on both occasions. After being shot at the second time, Meza’s stolen van struck two patrol cars and became disabled, Williams said. Meza was not struck by gunfire, but was taken to a hospital for injuries sustained in the crash. Deputies discovered a dog inside the vehicle that had apparently been struck by gunfire, Williams said. The dog, believed to belong to Meza, was taken to a local veterinary hospital for treatment and later released. One sheriff’s deputy was treated for whiplash and released from a hospital, Williams said. The sheriff’s homicide detail took over the investigation as is customary in deputy-involved shootings. — City News Service coastnewsgroup @CoastNewsGroup

Changing the culture in Sacramento By Marie Waldron

Last month 140 legislators, staffers, consultants and lobbyists signed a letter declaring that there is a “pervasive culture of sexual harassment” in Sacramento. Signatories include six current legislators, a Board of Equalization member, both Republicans and Democrats. Allegations have been made against current and past legislators. Unfortunately, given the power and influence of some of the alleged perpetrators, the consequences of speaking up about inappropriate behavior can be significant. For too long, this problem has been swept under the rug, with victims afraid to speak out or to identify those responsible. Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D-Glendale), Chair of Assembly Rules Subcommittee on Harassment, Discrimination, Retaliation Prevention and Response, and myself as Vice Chair, announced that our committee will gather information about mistreatment from victims and examine current practices and policies. We will do all that we can to ensure that a culture that seems to wink at abuse, harassment and obnoxious behavior changes immediately. In addition, victims must feel safe when reporting these incidents; we must ensure that retaliation or threats of retaliation are not tolerated. The Legislative Women's Caucus is advocating for a bi-partisan, bi-cameral approach with the singular end goal of no more victims. Connecting victims to services, creating a safe reporting system, holding perpetrators accountable and changing the Capitol culture are critical sub-goals. California has a longstanding reputation of supporting justice and equality for all. Apparently however, we still have a long way to go.

Hacking public infrastructure

Last week, cyber-criminal hackers attacked the Sacramento Regional Transit system (SacRT), erasing computer programs that affected internal operations, including computers that assign bus routes throughout the Sacramento region. More harm was threatened if SacRT failed to meet a ransom demand. The ransom message was sent via Facebook demanding a bitcoin payment, with a value above $8,000 immediately. SacRT officials determined that no data was stolen and steps are underway to secure the system. Transit services were not impacted. Other recent reports include the security breach at Equifax, one of the nation’s three major consumer credit reporting agencies. Reportedly, the sensitive financial information of 143 million Americans was compromised, making this one of the largest security breaches in history. Shortly after being elected to the Assembly, I became aware of a hacking incident at a local hospital. A caller using Voice

over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology shut down the emergency room’s phone lines in an extortion attempt. As a result of this and other incidents, I introduced Assembly Bill 1649, which expanded the California Comprehensive Computer Data Act to combat this growing threat. The bill updated legal definitions and modernized our codes to include forms of computer hacking, including government and public safety infrastructure systems operated by hospitals, emergency services and public utility companies. AB 1649 was signed into law by Gov. Brown. From government to private industry, our financial security and our voter files are all under threat of attack by cyber-criminals. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty; it’s also the price that we all must pay for modern technology.

Agriculture in San Diego

More than 14 percent of the nation’s agricultural exports come from California. We produce over one-third of the country’s vegetables and two-thirds of our fruits and nuts. Contrary to what many in Northern California may think, much of California’s abundance originates in our region. Our farms and farmers are unique in many ways. First of all, we have the 2nd highest number of farms in the entire United States with women as the principal operator. According to Julie Walker, past president of the San Diego County Farm Bureau, current board member and advisor to the Executive Committee, 30 percent of all San Diego County farms are operated by women. From vegetables supplied to local restaurants, to growing cut flowers, managing groves and vineyards, women are involved at all levels of local agriculture. California’s 40,000 women farmers have an economic impact of $1.6 billion, generated by farms covering 9.5 million acres. San Diego also has more small family farms and more part-time farmers than any other county in the nation, with our county’s crops ranked 12th in total value among the nation’s 3,000 counties. We are the number one producer of avocados and nursery crops. We rank third in honey production, fifth in lemons, ninth in strawberries and tenth in egg-laying hens. To make sure California agriculture continues to thrive, I have authored several bills to provide reliable and affordable supplies of water, including bills for construction and expansion of water storage facilities and the use of treated wastewater for irrigation. As an elected representative from one of this state’s leading farm regions, I will continue to do all I can to support this important sector of our economy. Minority Floor Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes Escondido, San Marcos and Vista.

Inland News Briefs Man gets life for running down cop VISTA —A motorist who intentionally ran down a motorcycle officer conducting a routine traffic stop in Oceanside was sentenced today to 29 years to life in state prison. Roberto Ignacio Flores, 26, was convicted last month of premeditated attempted murder of a peace officer in the June 19 assault on Oceanside police Officer Brad Hunter, a 29-year veteran of the department. Flores also had a conviction for possession of an assault weapon. Deputy District Attorney Keith Watanabe said Hunter had stopped a car for an expired registration near Oceanside Boulevard and Foussat Road about 10:30 a.m. when Flores — driving a Dodge Neon — accelerated and veered directly into the motorcycle officer, scooping him up and flipping him over the defendant’s car. Flores sped away but was captured a few minutes later, Watanabe said. Once in a jail cell, Flores told a sheriff’s detective posing as an inmate and a confidential informant that he intended to hit Hunter and wasn’t sorry about it, according to the prosecutor. “He (Flores) said, ‘I got one. I got one,’” Watanabe said, referring to the defendant hitting a police officer. Hunter suffered head injuries and his leg was broken in three places. The officer had to be placed in a coma until swelling on the brain subsided.

County home prices continue climb REGION — The median price of a home in San Diego County rose by 4.4 percent in October, compared with the same month a year earlier, while the number of homes sold dipped by 0.3 percent, a real estate information service announced on Nov. 29. According to CoreLogic, the median price of a San Diego County home was $529,750 last month, up from $507,500 in October 2016. A total of 3,587 homes were sold in the county, up from 3,597 during the same month the previous year.

A total of 20,735 new and resale houses and condos changed hands in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Ventura, San Bernardino and Orange counties last month, according to CoreLogic. That was down 1.6 percent from 21,075 in September and up 3.6 percent from 20,012 in October 2016. The median price of a Southern California home was $495,000 in October, down 2 percent from $505,000 in September and up 6.5 percent from $465,000 in October 2016.

Region’s economic indicators tick up REGION — The University of San Diego Burnham-Moores Institute for Real Estate’s Index of Leading Economic Indicators for San Diego County rose 0.6 percent last month thanks to a strong outlook for the national economy, according to figures released Nov. 29. More modest gains occurred in consumer confidence, local stock prices and the jobs picture, according to Professor Alan Gin, who compiles the data and issues the monthly report. He said the number of residential

building permits issued by local governments declined, but only by a small amount. The national Index of Leading Economic Indicators has risen 14 months in a row, fueled by significant job gains. He said that rise has translated to an increase of more than 23,000 jobs in the San Diego region through the first three quarters this year. October’s gain put the index at 146.2, the highest mark in about 17 years, and above a pre-recession high of 144.2.

San Lucas vacation, a Cal-aVie getaway, one-of-a-kind chandelier earrings and more. More than $20,000 in raffle prizes was also up for grabs. Then what everyone was finally waiting for happened — comedian Dana Carvey delivered a legendary and exceptional performance.

Committee members included Lylene Balken, Deb Carter, Dayana Coffler, Angela Colucci, Tiffany Filippi, Dawn Koutsky, Karen Lindstrom, Colleen O’Harra, Renee Salas, Ellen Stotmeister and Deborah Trusty.

Fire district looks holiday to fill vacant seat CALENDAR By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — The Vista Fire Protection District is seeking candidates to fill a board seat vacancy. The new board member will fill the seat of Richard Hemenez, a longtime board member, who died Oct. 23. The provisional appointment will expire in November 2018. The district has a call out for board seat submissions. Those interested are asked to submit their application by Dec. 6. A letter of intent and resume is optional. According to Director Robert Fougner, the message of this vacancy is being communicated to the broader community. Interested parties residing in the district and over the age of 21 can step forward to help fulfill the mission of the organization. “This seat is for a person who wants to make a contribution to the community and is interested in helping to manage the delivery of fire and emergency medical services to their community in this special district that we have outside of the city of Vista,” Fougner said. Fougner describes the perfunctory application to be completed in writing. It can be mailed, or hand de-

livered if time sensitive. The district will then review applications. “The people that we think are most qualified will be invited to come for an interview which will take place on the day of our Dec. 13 meeting but much earlier in the afternoon — we have quite a bit going on that evening,” he said. Fougner said the board hoped that the appointment would be made by the end of the year. The goal is to make the official announcement that a selection has been made by the four members of the board to fill the vacancy until the end of the term in November 2018. Hemenez served on the fire board since 1982. “The nice thing is, whoever is the successful candidate, come next November when there’s the general election they can, if they want to continue, submit their candidacy as the incumbent now for that position,” Fougner said. Fougner also came on the Vista Fire Protection District by way of a provisional appointment when Lance Vollmer died in 2006.

or other damage to nearby buildings was reported. “It was called in by a neighbor who saw the fire,” he added. “We basically had to let it burn through the roof before we could get water on the inside. It was a total loss.” Murdock said the conditions allowed for the smoke to settle in the area, and the department even received calls from residents thinking a separate fire had started. “The biggest concern during the fire was smoke,” he added. “What they were seeing was the smoke settling from this fire.” The 12,000-square-foot clubhouse was abandoned four years after a bitter dispute between residents of the Escondido Country Club and property owner Michael Schlesinger, who wanted to develop the land with hundreds of homes.

380 homes by developer New Urban West. According to media reports, several residents are questioning the timing of the fire. Mike Slater, president of the Escondido Country Club Homeowners, who has lead the fight against development plans for years, said in a media interview the fire was a low blow. “Kick to the belly,” he told NBC7. “It’s like a low punch. A sucker punch as they say.” Another group, Renew Our Country Club, supports New Urban West’s plan and one of their founding members, Miles Grimes, posted a statement to the group’s Facebook page. “We are grateful to our first responders who quickly got this under control. Fortunately, no one was injured,” he said. “The abandoned clubhouse has been attracting crime and vagrants for years now. It is critical we move forward with the redevelopment plans without any further delays from ECCHO or anyone else. Our neighborhood deserves to be safe again.”

Hair Restoration … Buyer Beware: Why a Specialist is the ‘Natural Choice’ OCEANSIDE — Hair loss is so common that you can find options for hair restoration in many places these days. So how do you choose where to go? The answer is simple. “Hair restoration is a specialty, and you want to go to a specialist,” Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD said. “Our surgeons are highly trained and skilled at performing hair restoration surgery,” he added. “It’s the only thing we do here.” Many plastic surgery and dermatology offices are now offering hair restoration, but Wagner advises that what you see isn’t always what you get. “We’ve had many people come in to see us who have been to a dermatologist or plastic surgeon’s office first,” he said. “They meet a doctor during their consultation,

and assume that the doctor will be performing their procedure. However, often that isn’t the case. Most of these doctors don’t have hair restoration training and more or less ‘oversee or supervise’ the techs doing the actual surgery.” By choosing an office that specializes in hair restoration, like MyHairTransplantMD, you ensure that you’re getting the best possible care from your consultation through your procedure and beyond. “Specialists are trained to treat you in the long term,” Wagner said. “Hair restoration isn’t a service that we added to keep up with demand. It’s who we are, it’s what we do. And we are the best.” Wagner listed some of the commonsense reasons why MyHairTransplantMD is your top choice for permanent and affordable hair

Patricia tried to start an inappropriate relationship with him, but he shut her down. In early November, Misty received a 10-year deferred sentence and will serve two years' probation. Her mother/ex-wife (their union was annulled in October) will be sentenced in January. [KFOR-TV, 11/9/2017]

Family Values Members of the Spann family of Comanche County, Oklahoma, keep running afoul of that state's incest law, with the latest dust-up over the marriage of 26-year-old Misty Spann and her 43-year-old mother, Patricia, in March 2016. The two had been separated after Patricia lost custody of her young kids, but when they resumed contact a few years ago, Patricia told investigators, "they hit it off."

Our staff is highly experienced and we don’t use outside contractors.” • Both FUE and FUG methods offered. “Both Follicular Unit Extraction

(FUE) and Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG) produce amazing natural-looking results,” Wagner said. “Both techniques place hairs the way they would naturally grow. The big difference is the way in which the hairs are extracted. While FUG excises long, thin strips of scalp, FUE makes a tiny circular punch around each follicular unit. While FUG involves a thin scar which is difficult to detect, even on close inspection, FUE leaves only tiny circular marks that are typically

also undetectable. There are no sutures or bandages with FUE.” • Results that speak for themselves. “Our clients experience the finest results money can buy,” Wagner said. “We have more before and after pics on our website than our competitors to prove that. During our initial consultation, our clients will learn what is realistically possible for them, and not what we think they want to hear.” • Upfront and affordable. “Our fees are based

REGION — A request by San Diego Gas & Electric to recover $379 million of costs caused by the 2007 wildfires from ratepayers was denied Nov. 30 by the California Public Utilities Commission. The commission found that SDG&E did not reasonably operate its facilities that were linked to the Witch, Guejito and Rice wildfires, which killed two people, burned nearly 200,000 acres and destroyed more than 1,100 homes. The October 2007 fires were blamed on power lines that blew down during strong Santa Ana winds. “There is no dispute that SDG&E facilities caused these fires,” said Commissioner Liane Randolph. “The question we had to analyze was whether the costs related to the fires should be paid by customers or shareholders,” Randolph said. “The CPUC undertook a careful review of the facts of each fire and determined in each case that customers should not have to bear these costs.” In response, Lee Schavrien, SDG&E’s senior vice president and chief regulatory officer, said the CPUC made the wrong decision, which the utility will seek to overturn. “The 2007 wildfires were

a natural disaster fueled by extreme conditions including the worst Santa Ana wind event this region has ever seen, combined with high heat, low humidity and hurricane-force winds as high as 92 mph,” Schavrien said. “Experts from Cal Fire and the county Office of Emergency Services described the weather as ‘unprecedented (in) magnitude,’ and ‘wind conditions being the worst they had ever seen in recent memory.’” He said the ruling conflicts with findings made by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. In filings with the agency, SDG&E said it faced $2.4 billion in costs from the fires, including 2,500 lawsuits

seeking damages. The company said it has recovered $1 billion from insurance carriers and another $824 million from Cox Communications and three contractors. In the past, the CPUC has held that for costs to be found reasonable, the utility must prove that they were “prudently incurred by competent management exercising the best practices of the era, and using well-trained, well-informed and conscientious employees and contractors who are performing their jobs properly.” For all three fires the CPUC determined that SDG&E’s operation and management of its facilities prior to the ignition of the wildfires was not prudent.

At Castle Noel near Cleveland, every day is Christmas hit the road

Harley Littler of Warren, Ohio, poses with the battered RV that belonged to Cousin Eddie (played by Randy Quaid) in the 1989 film “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” The RV is parked behind Castle Noel in Medina, Ohio.

tanding at the top of the Big Red Slide on Santa Claus Mountain, I recall a scene from the film “A Christmas Story.” Ralphie and his brother are pushed down a similar slide by a devious elf after a less-than-satisfactory visit with Department Store Santa. Fortunately, zipping down this slide is safe enough for even the 101½-year-old who holds the record. So I position myself on the burlap bag and whoosh! It’s a fast and fun trip to the bottom, which marks the end of our adventure through Castle Noel Christmas Museum. It was mid-October when we visited the museum in Medina, Ohio, a town of 27,000 about 35 miles southwest of Cleveland. Though the holiday season was still a good month away, crowds of eager visitors lined up for the 75-minute tours through what has become one man’s fantasy-come-true. You can blame Mark Klaus (yes, his real name), 55, for this over-the-top holiday immersion which opened in 2013. The artist/sculptor, who made his fortune selling collectibles and creating

This sweet shop was once a window display at New York City’s Lord & Taylor store. Such window displays often were destroyed after the holidays, but Castle Noel creator Mark Klaus (pictured, at left) persuaded Lord & Taylor and other stores to let him preserve the displays.

Hollywood sets, is obsessed with all-things-Christmas and wants to celebrate all year long. “People are excited about what we’ve saved here and I love seeing the joy and love on their faces,” said Klaus, who grew up in a Cleveland suburb, where, thanks to his father, “our house was a Christmas wonderland.” Klaus is carrying that tradition forward, although in a much bigger way. He created Castle Noel in a 40,000-square-foot, 1890s church and school that covers a half-block in picturesque downtown Medina (pronounced Ma-DY-na). It’s a collection of sets, props and

costumes from just about every Christmas film you can name — “Elf,” “A Christmas Story,” “The Santa Clause,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” and more. “We have more than 400 props and costumes from ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas,’ alone,” Klaus said. Tour guides with snappy narrations also take visitors through elaborate animated department-store window displays that once drew thousands to Macy’s, Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdale’s. According to Klaus, stores previously destroyed their window displays at season’s end for fear they would

be used inappropriately. He managed to persuade the stores to allow him be the caretaker of history. For example, on Jan. 1 of this year, Klaus and crew spent the night on the New Jersey side of the Lincoln Tunnel after joining thousands who came to get last looks at the Christmas windows at Saks and Lord & Taylor. The following day, the holiday scenes were dismantled and packed for the trip from New York City to Medina. Four months later, they were assembled and ready for viewing at Castle Noel. And the work continues — always. “There is almost always something new to see,” Klaus said — perhaps because additional movie props and

holiday décor are stored in a nearby 10,000-square-foot warehouse. “We never take a day off. We work seven days a week.” As we progressed through the castle’s maze of rooms, I understood why we had to sign a waiver. Tools, mannequins, costumes, holiday décor and festive flotsam filled every corner and cranny in the unfinished areas, which were just as fascinating as the finished exhibits. We also passed through the “I Had That!” toy collection from the ‘50s through the ‘80s; a Blizzard Vortex that challenges visitors to remain upright (it’s not easy, believe me); and the Chimney Squeeze — inflatables in a tunnel that mimics Santa’s trip down the chimney. More

than 75,000 glass tree ornaments have been wired and glued one-by-one on walls and ceiling. If this doesn’t saturate your senses, check out Alien Vacation Mini Golf on the same property. The attraction employs “props from 20 sci-fi films to reinvent another story,” says Klaus’ wife, Dana. “Aliens crash land on earth and are here for a good time.” Visit https://castlenoel. com/.

Napa Valley Merlot is Wine Spectator’s No. 1 taste of wine

frank mangio


can’t tell you how pleased I am to let you in on the No. 1 wine of 2017 from the largest circulated wine journal in the world, Wine Spectator. Duckhorn Merlot 2014 ($98) from Three Palms Vineyard was perfect for two big reasons. It comes as Napa Valley is working hard to come back from the recent horrific fires that burned more than 240,000 acres in Napa and Sonoma, more than the size of Manhattan in New York City, with 42 deaths recorded. The second is the Merlot varietal, which has had a hard 10 years since “Sideways” the movie sliced and diced this historically iconic grape. Duckhorn was founded in 1976 with its first Merlot made in 1978 as their signature wine. Nearly 16,000 wines were blind tasted this year as reported by Wine Spectator, which named the top 100 to make the cut. “The wines featured in our top 100 list capture the character of the past year and exemplify the quality and diversity the wine world has to offer,” said Marvin Shanken, editor and publisher of Wine Spectator. Winemaker for Duckhorn is Renee Ary, who started in 2003 at Duckhorn just north of St. Helena. The rest of the Top Ten include: K, Syrah 2014 Washington, Chateau Coutet 2014 Bordeaux France, Casanova di Neri 2012 Brunello

Fancy fridge dreams on a frugal budget


he fun just never stops around my house. I get to buy a new refrigerator. You think I’m being sarcastic, but no. I love it when I can shop for a big ticket item with a completely clear conscience. We had two refrigerators for a while, which I know is neither ecologically sound nor fiscally responsible. All that is outweighed, however, by having a place to make my husband keep his bait for surf fishing and his foul-smelling cheese collection. It’s also nice to have a place to stock up on drinks and food for the occasional soiree. It lived a long and useful life as a hand-me-down from

I can’t be sure if it had any effect on my husband’s cheese. Meanwhile, the primary fridge in the kitchen appears to be crippled with grief for its dead cousin.

the vegetables anything but crisp. It has been doing this for several years, off and on. The message is clear to me. It has lost its will to live. For certain, I have lost the will to let it live, so refrigerator shopping I will happily go. I’ll probably settle for a simple over-and-under, but what I’d really like is a walkin with nothing but eye-level shelves. My goal is never to have to bend over and search a bottom shelf again. It would also be helpful whenever my family needs to find something. Eye level is all they scan. If it can’t be seen with one rotation of the head, it must only exist in mom’s parallel universe and only she can fetch it. Once I decide I need something like a refrigerator, I want it yesterday. I become easy pickings for every silver-tongued appliance salesman out there in his double-knit, plaid sports coat. It usually goes like this. I first spot, and fall in

I then sullenly move down the line, looking for that delicate balance of features I want, at a price I am willing to add to my already fat credit card balance. Back and forth, round and round, I try to compare cubic square feet, crushed ice or cubed, energy efficiency and colors until my eyes cross. Then I settle for the one on sale.

Classic Chariots’ annual Winter Festival is Dec. 9 By Christina Macone-Greene

munities can rely on Classic Chariots for a great holiday event. “It’s a really touching experience when you hand nice gifts over to kids and their parents,” Fontanini said. “It’s emotional because you can tell they appreciate it.” Mehdi Chitgari, CEO and president of Classic Chariots, agreed it’s easy to get teary-eyed at the event. “It means so much that we can provide a couple of hours for families to come here and be completely happy,” he said. Chitgari also shared he enjoys picking the raffle tickets and giving away the gifts. He described it as incredible. “It’s such a great feeling when we can help people, especially young kids. When they have a winning ticket, they run up and grab their gift,” he said. “This event is our way to say happy holidays to everyone, and we look forward to seeing everyone on Dec. 9.” The Winter Festival is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 9 at Classic Chariots located at 1611 W. Vista Way in Vista. For more information, call (760) 414-1600. For available business vendor opportunities, contact Susie at (760) 295-6237.


John Donel, a senior research librarian, submitted his resignation last week in protest and chided the council and said he was disheartened the council opted to politicize the library and subvert the First Amendment. “I believe in the mission of libraries,” he said. “The most important of which, is the protecting of our free speech rights. Libraries are the embodiment of how governments show their respect for our constitutional rights to free speech. This is a government function, not something that should be run or profited off by a private business.” The majority of the council praised the contract where the Library board of trustees and the city can request changes into scope of services. Additionally, the board of trustees will be involved with the management and decisions about what books are purchased. Mayor Sam Abed, meanwhile, said the council is trying to make the library sustainable for the next 10 years. As for the pension, Abed said if it is capped for the 38 employees, it will cost $1 million per year and if the status quo remains, it will run more than $2 million. “I don’t care how much profit LS&S makes,” Abed said at the Oct. 22 meeting. “I care about how much they save the city. In a year or two, we will have to make a decision whether to keep our police, ambulance service and fire department or the library. I’m not going to be the mayor of this city and have to make that choice.”

VISTA — Classic Chariots is turning into a festive wonderland during its ninth annual Winter Festival on Dec. 9. The Vista-based car dealership is helping to make holiday wishes come true for families and their children. The annual Winter Festival is free of charge, and everyone will have the opportunity to receive raffle tickets to win a prize which ranges from toys, electronics, gift certificates, Christmas trees and more. Hundreds of gifts are raffled off. Within a twohour period, a gift goes to the winning ticketholder every 45 seconds. Last year, more than 800 people were in attendance. The Winter Festival is Classic Chariots’ unique way of giving back. While Classic Chariots doles out the gifts, attendees enjoy complimentary meals and sodas, face painting and activities for the kids. “We have actually had people say that if it weren’t for this event, they would not have had a Christmas tree this year,” John Fontanini of Classic Chariots said. “This event is a good way to meet our neighbors and to take care of them.” Vista residents and those in neighboring com-

ing does not show common sense,” she said. “Hopefully, this lawsuit will help the majority of the current City Council abandon the path they are on right now and start doing things the right way.” Geraci said one of the arguments is around the Library board of trustees, which operates the facility and is supposed to take out the politics. This is the first library in San Diego County to be privatized, although LS&S operates a facility in Riverside County. “By being operated and managed by a board of trustees, the community is ensured that the knowledge and information contained in the library is safe and secure and beyond the reach of politics,” he added.

Trio of North County prep teams aim for football titles


f you’re still playing high school football — or watching it — it’s already the most wonderful time of the year. Forget about the NFL team that ditched San Diego. We hear it’s on a winning streak but we don’t want to go there. Instead many are hitching a ride to some of the best prep football of the season. This weekend’s competition offers big games with big stakes and big-time bragging rights. These student-athletes, win or lose, will never forget the day they competed for a prep football title. Three local teams are still alive for a California Interscholastic Federation

San Diego Section crown, with all games being played at Southwestern College. El Camino (7-5) and Eastlake (10-2) will battle for the Division I title on Friday at 7 p.m. Mission Hills (12-0) takes on Helix (11-1) the following night for the Open Division championship, also at 7. Before that pairing, Santa Fe Christian (8-4) plays El Centro Southwest (12-0) in Division III. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime

event for the players. But for one prep sportswriter, it’s his fourth decade reporting on these games. “Oh gosh, this is probably my 40th finals,” John Maffei said. Maffei, an Escondido resident, is the dean of covering San Diego County prep sports. There’s not much he’s missed on his watch, one that has seen him scribble for the Oceanside Blade Citizen-Tribune, the North County Times and now the San Diego Union-Tribune. He was a trusted colleague of mine at every one of those stops. So if I start yapping about prep sports, it’s only after putting my ear to the receiver as Maf-

fei talks. When El Camino is mentioned, Maffei is impressed. The Wildcats overcame a head-coaching change on the eve of the season and despite that, advanced to the final. They had to survive a nail-bitter against Oceanside, 49-42, in the semifinal to snap the Pirates’ eight-game winning streak against their crosstown rivals. El Camino still has a pulse because of the calm demeanor of quarterback Jaden Casey. His scoring run with 10.8 seconds left was the difference. “He’s pretty good, throwing for more than 2,700 yards,’’ Maffei said. “He has two really special

receivers in Malachi Russell and Wayne Steward.’’ Mission Hills has a unique talent as well in quarterback Jack Tuttle. Before his career continues at the University of Utah, Tuttle will try to earn a title in the Grizzlies’ fifth trip to the finals. Like El Camino, Mission Hills pulled out a thriller, a 20-17 decision over Torrey Pines. Tuttle clicked with Quinton Hadnot with 72 seconds remaining on a 16-yard scoring pass. Tuttle is legit, according to Maffei. Ditto for Chris Olave, a wide receiver that nearly every major college is recruiting. Then there’s Santa Fe Christian, the Solana Beach

squad that might lead everyone it grit. Despite an early season injury to quarterback Demitri Washington, the Eagles are flying high. Maffei agrees, but he notes they are doing so by staying on the ground. “They run that funky Wing-T offense and they are very well coached,” Maffei said. “They seem to have the knack for making the big play when they need it.’’ If looking for something to do this weekend, here are three good options. Like the players, you’ll likely never forget the game, either. Contact Jay Paris at

University Dominguez Hills and junior guard Jordan Hilstock. “Just having experience on the floor is insurmountable in regards to the process, as a coach, being able to rely on an experienced player with ball in their hands, specifically veteran guards, coaches will tell you that is extremely valuable,” Bolton said. “Having a decision maker who has been in tight games, championship Vista senior guards Taurus Samuels, left, and Isaiah Morris. Photo by games, that is something Aaron Burgin that gives you a little bit of a calm.” The Panthers will have their work cut out for them to maintain the No. 1 spot. They play in one of the toughest nonconference tournaments on the West Coast, the Damien Classic; and the Avocado East League is arguably one of the three toughest in San Diego. “We are going to get everyone’s ‘A’ game, and that’s what we have come to expect,” Bolton said. “We just have to prepare and take it one game at a time.”

When Taurus Samuels and Isaiah Morris enrolled at Vista High School in 2014, the Panthers were coming off of their worst season in seven years. But they believed that they could be part of the group that returned the Panthers to prominence. “I knew they had a tradition of being a great program, and I felt comfortable here,” Samuels said. “I knew that one year was just a blip and that things would get right back on track.” Flash forward 3 ½ years, and the Panthers are right where the senior guards thought they would be. The Panthers return the core of their team that was a basket away from advancing to the state’s regional semifinals after making it to the CIF San Diego Section Open Division semifinals. With that as the backdrop, Vista is the No. 1 team in The Coast News’ preseason Top 10 poll, over region standard bearer Torrey Pines, league rival San Marcos, upstart Canyon Crest Academy and traditional power La Costa Canyon. Vista Head Coach Anthony Bolton, coming off of a 28-5 season, said the Panthers aren’t paying attention to preseason rankings. They are focusing on each game at a time. “Our focus is never on rankings, whether we are ranked high, low, left, right, we are focused on ourselves,” Bolton said. “We are focused on what we can control, and our actions, which will determine what our rankings will be.” “Obviously it is an honor Vista can get recognized, but we don’t concern ourselves with rankings,” Bolton said. Bolton’s confidence in his team is well placed, as it returns arguably the top backcourt in San Diego County with Samuels, who signed to Dartmouth College last month, Morris, who signed with Cal State

will certainly make it so it doesn’t get worse and worse.” South Vista Communities is supporting the efforts of C4FA while also accomplishing their organization’s goals. Hope Nelson, the organizer for C4FA, said the organization was formed in October 2017. While new, Nelson said she has been following the noise issues at McClellan-Palomar Airport. Nelson has been a Carlsbad resident for 17 years. She lived across the street from the McClellan-Palomar Airport and moved last June. “We opted to sell our house because we were concerned about property values. There’s documented information that say that dependent on your proximity to the airport, your property value can go down by as much as 30 percent,” she said. Now, Nelson lives under three miles away from the airport and she can still hear the airplanes. Nelson said that the airport noise is not just a CROP Carlsbad centric issue. The goal.93 of the Nov. 8 meeting was.93 to have their newly 4.17 group offer their formed 4.28 viewpoints on the new master plan the county is planning on putting before the Board of Supervisors regarding the airport. “This is a specific master plan that has been in the works for quite a while now,” she said. “It’s a 20year masterplan for McClellan-Palomar Airport. And it calls for some pretty major expansion.” A big part of the expansion is adding hundreds of runway feet. “So, you’re talking about a runway that is going to end up being comparable to the size of one of the runways at John Wayne Airport,” she said. Nelson said their group has a very focused goal. It wants the citizens of Carlsbad to have the opportunity to vote on this expansion. “This is such a major issue,” Nelson said. “We want the citizens to have a say.” The draft EIR connect-




to look into what was going on.” Since that time, they’ve had three meetings with the FAA and a few with McClellan-Palomar Airport staff — and the airplane noise still exists. According to Jackel, a member of their organization is a pilot and explained that the reason for the low overflights is based on the FAA’s NextGen technology which triggers flight patterns changes and lower altitudes. The NextGen system, which is best described as a GPS, was implemented back in 2013, Jackel said. “Before NextGen, airplanes used to have to fly from a visual point to point. They were flying east to approximately San Marcos, then turning around and

flying west to the airport, along the line of Palomar Airport Road,” Jackel said. Now aircraft are coming over South Vista. While not trying to be a defeatist, Jackel is certain the overflight routes cannot be changed. What she is hoping for, however, is that the proposed expansion plans for McClellan-Palomar Airport do not happen. If they do, South Vista Communities is concerned that low overhead noise pollution will increase at a rapid rate as well as the frequency of larger airplanes flying overhead. “Citizens for a Friendly Airport wants to force the city of Carlsbad to hold a vote on the expansion of the airport,” Jackel said. “If we can stop the expansion and more flights, then it’s not going to make anything wonderful, but it

Seventy-six years ago, on December 7th, 1941, the Japanese attacked American forces at Pearl Harbor, killing over 2,400 Americans, wounding 1,282, destroying 188 aircraft, sinking four Navy battleships, and, as the world later found out, awakening a sleeping giant. President Franklin D. Roosevelt described December 7, 1941, as a “date which will live in infamy.” May every generation remember the battles fought on that day, remember the heroes, and all those who were lost that day. We owe these men and women our eternal gratitude and honor them today and every day for the freedoms we, as Americans, enjoy!
